Don't tell me you wouldn't buy it

Yesterday, Megan Twittered: I need to eat all my Reeces Puffs NOW so I can get the Batman action figures in the specially marked box!

And I thought, no fair!

So my next business idea?
The grown-up cereal with a prize in the box!

you forgot the sugar coating - which is what makes eating the cereal worth the prize!

Erika said...

Oooh, where can I buy this cereal? :)

Suan said...

remember when.... we didn't eat all the cereal to get the prize. we just stuck our hands in there and dug around and pulled out the prize :)

Karlene,
Ha! Very funny. If that's an engagement ring, maybe you could just skip the ring and stick a guy in the box.

'Course, he'd have to be awfully short ... :o)

oh yeah, The prize offered determines which cereal my kids get.

FYI- they used to do this in oatmeal, cream of wheat, ralston, dish soap, laundry soap- there was china and dishes and pots and pans and all kinds of goodies like that. My grandmother had dishes that she got out of laundry soap when she first got married in the '30's

Pardon my cynicism but if Post charges an extra .75 per box because it has a prize in it (you know they do) how much would this one run me?
